Publisher's Summary

Grieving over the loss of her family and feeling like her life is unraveling, Lindsey McDermott quits her job, gets a puppy, and retreats to her grandparents' home in the Texas Hill Country. She spends her solitary days walking childhood trails and reminiscing, trying to reconcile the conflict within her as she struggles with survivor's guilt.

After the death of her husband, Hannah Larson needs a change. At the suggestion of her mother-in-law - and against her better judgment - she and her son Jack move to tiny Utopia and into her husband's grandmother's house.

When Jack and Lindsey form an unlikely friendship, Hannah reluctantly joins them and the three spend the summer swimming and healing as laughter eventually replaces tears. After Jack goes back to school, Hannah assumes their summer fun is over. Instead, Lindsey continues to come around and now - as they find themselves alone - Hannah realizes just how close they've become. Soon, she finds herself struggling with her feelings as their friendship threatens to shift into something much deeper...something she fears she won't be able to fight. Something she fears she won't want to fight.

A story of grief and healing...a story of love.

    "A pleasant read that wasn't formula so great."

    A pleasant story that didn't follow the regular formula so it was quite refreshing. Mostly realistic character portrayal.

    "Wonderful, loved it"

    I usually don't complete reviews however this was a wonderful book. Sometimes you read or listen as I did to a book and want it to finally end, and sometimes in this case you want it to go on. Great story line, great characters, overall a joy to listen to. Had me laugh, and cry. I have enjoyed the authors books for past few years and look forward to more. Highly recommend.

    "Never Disappointed "

    Gerri Hill never disappoints!!! Such a great story, like a Hallmark movie for lesbians. The characters were charming and unforgettable. The emotion delivered (Great job Abby Carden!) in each sentence was touching. The characters personalities were humbling and refreshing. Keep up the excellent work Gerri Hill, and thank you for sharing your gift with us.

    "Loved the book! "

    The story was sweet and you are captivated from the beginning. The boy in the book is adorable. I love the narrator Abby Craden. She makes you feel the emotions the author is trying to portray. I found myself not wanting it to finish.

    Sweet, full of love and care, without too much drama. Just normal people living their lives, struggling through devastating loss, but open to love.

    "Excellent "

    Excellent book. Grief is hard to to put in words, but the author does a good job in the storyline. I love how Jack and Lindsay tentatively share their story and the connect. I wanted to book the keep going. Abby Craden is my favorite of all time narrator! Only problem with Gerri Hill is she doesn’t come out the books fast enough!

    "Win"

    Another winner from Gerri Hill. I really didn't want the story to end. Abby Craden was fantastic as usual. I feel part of the story every time. She's definitely one of my favorite narrator. Worth having this book.

    Story
    "Surprise! "

    I was surprise when listening to this book it became apparent that it is “Gay Fiction” I finished it and thought it was sweet for what it was but not really what I was expecting. Very descriptive with sex scene’s so not for someone looking for Heterosexual romance fiction but definitely for someone wanting to experience something alternative.
